From the latest high-powered machines to scooters and unusual trikes, bikers rode in from all corners of the nation to celebrate the event and show off their machines at Meldreth Manor School on Wednesday last week.

Organisers raised a whopping £14k for good causes including The East Anglian Air Ambulance, SERV blood riders, The Prince’s Trust and Meldreth Manor School, a special school and children’s home for disabled children and young people.
